Lifting Up . . . May B g] M 

Travis Moon, husband of Betty Moon and member of Sandy Creek UCC, 
LaFayette, AL, died suddenly this month. Betty and Travis were both very active 
in the East Alabama-West Georgia Association and shared a tremendous love for 
the United Church of Christ. Betty asks that you keep her and her family in prayer. 

We were saddened to hear the news of the death of Shannon Childress, the 
Assistant Choir Director at Holy Trinity Community Church UCC, Nashville. 
Shannon had a long struggle with cancer. Pastor Cindy Andrews-Looper and the 
Holy Trinity choir led the memorial service which took place in Kentucky May 21st. 

UCC local churches in North Carolina and Alabama are assisting residents 
with food and water as they are able. Even though some members had damage 
to or lost their homes, outreach to the whole community is their focus. To assist 
these efforts a total of $10,000 from One Great Hour of Sharing has been sent to 
these local churches. 

The UCC Ohio Conference as part of 

its disaster response ministries 

prepares and stores clean up buckets 

and hygiene kits. On Wednesday last 

week, two members of the Ohio 

Conference disaster team drove a truck 

filled with 600 clean up buckets; and 540 hygiene kits to Birmingham, Alabama. 

The kits were delivered to First Congregation Church UCC where members of our 

area local churches unloaded the truck. These kits will go to homeowners to 

assist in cleanup of damaged homes and to provide essentials such as a 

toothbrush and toothpaste.
